H-1B visas are the perfect stepping stone to obtaining a green card
The H-1B specialty workers visa is a foreign citizen visa that allows foreign nationals to enter into the U.S. and perform services in a preplanned professional job. The job must be in a ‘specialty occupation’ and must require a bachelor’s degree as a minimum for entry into the field.
To qualify for a H-1B visa, you must:
Your H-1B visa can be valid for up to 6 years and you may extend your status even past the statutory limit under certain conditions. This makes the H-1B visa a perfect stepping stone to obtaining a green card. Also generally there is no limit on H-1B visas that can be obtained in a lifetime.
When compiling documentation for eligibility for H-1B visa petitions, both from the employer’s side and the worker’s side, it is not an instinctive process. Even in cases where a petition includes the required documents, papers should be presented in a logical format so that the immigration officer reviewing the case will make a favorable decision.
Additionally, special attention must be used in filing the paperwork by using the proper job title and occupational code, since some occupations, even if a bachelor’s degree is normally required, may still not qualify for H-1B.
